The present series of Devotions has been compiled with the view of supplying, in a measure, the want which is believed to be extensively felt, of some assistance towards realizing, for the purposes of meditation. the solemn subject of the Passion and Holy Weeks. It is almost obvious, that mere exhortation. However earnest and forcible, is quite inadequate to this end, without something which may serve to bring the actual details of the last memorable days of our Lord's Life of Suffering vividly before the mind's eye, as in a picture; and the minuteness with which the Holy Evangelists have been guided to depict the several incidents of the adorable Passion, may of itself be taken as a divine intimation of the mode in which Christians are intended to contemplate it. But it is quite remarkable. as experience abundantly shews how apt this especial feature of the sacred text is to be overlooked. Hence the value of such assistance as those, whose minds are habitually accustomed to realize the past and the absent as the present, can alone furnish towards bringing together and bringing out what in the Gospels is liable to escape notice from that absence of all regard to effect which is so strikingly characteristic of the Scripture records. This work contains: The Office of the Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ Rhythm of Saint Bonaventure on the Seven Last Words Litany of the Passion of Jesus Christ Prayers and Meditations on the Lord's Passion Seventeen Points of Meditation on the Passion of Jesus Christ Point of Meditation on the Passion of the Lord from Thomas a Kempis, the author of the Imitation of Christ. This book would be excellent for Holy Week, especially the three hours on Good Friday, the Tre Ore. We pray that these meditations will help all to appreciate more the sacrifice our Lord Jesus Christ made for the salvation of our souls.
